Lot description
"Sizzling Affairs" appropriates mass media images and words, combining them in a layered, collage-like composition. The artist uses fragmentation and repetition (multiple sets of eyes are a common theme in his work) along with neon colors to create an image that is jarring yet alluring. Like his street art, this screenprint by Bast is bold and energetic.

Brooklyn-based artist Bast has been an integral part of the street art scene for the past 10 years throughout New York and Europe, where his wheat-pasted images can be found across the urban landscape. The artist himself has remained an elusive character that has rarely been seen in public. Since 2003, his work has been included in numerous group shows from Japan to LA, to Colorado, New York, London and Berlin, with his gallery exposure quickly increasing. In 2005, he received his first solo exhibition at New York's Transplant Gallery, which also celebrated the release of his limited edition book, "Revolution de Papel." Many view Bast's works on canvas and paper to be a complete departure from what he presents on the street: many of these works are more aggressive and bold, incorporating appropriated imagery into collage-like, fragmented images. Bast is credited with influencing the collective artist group FAILE, with whom he has collaborated with on numerous occasions on the streets as well as for joint gallery exhibitions.
